Belal Sings Thank You

Belal, father of one of our Syrian refugee families, arrived in September, eager to show his gratitude for a new life in Milton Keynes and to continue his career as a professional singer.

He has taken every opportunity to demonstrate his impassioned voice at festivals, local celebrations and formal events as a way of saying thank you.

Belal sang at a recent 25th anniversary event for Christ the Cornerstone Church, and received a standing ovation. Reverend Ernesto Lozada-Uzuriaga, addressing the congregation, praised Belal for not allowing his voice to be silenced by the atrocities and urged him to keep singing.
